illustrated exercise instructions for improved ease of use by
patients. Additionally, many of these products can be used in-clinic and
at-home, simplifying practitioner implementation.
 

Patient empowerment, motivation, and active participation in home exercise
programs that complement in-clinic care are all critical topics for today’s
healthcare providers. They promote better outcomes and a transition to a
healthier lifestyle after recovery. For the practitioner, this translates to
improved patient relationships and results, increased referrals and stronger
compliance, with accepted standards of care.



Thera-Band Foot Roller

Made of supple natural rubber, the new Thera-Band Foot Roller is
an ideal tool for patients who are seeking an affordable, simple and effective
way to relieve foot pain caused by common conditions such as plantar fasciitis
and over-activity. Using the exercises illustrated right on the box, patients
with plantar fasciitis can use the roller as a device to stretch the plantar
fascia and increase flexibility. Those experiencing soreness from tired feet
will find the massaging benefits of the roller pleasant and therapeutic. In all
applications, the Foot Roller can be chilled or frozen to help reduce
inflammation. 

Thera-Band Mini Ball

The new Thera-Band nine inch Mini Ball joins a family of premier
Thera-Band balls designed for core muscle strengthening. Tactile, stretchy PVC
makes the Mini Ball responsive to the touch and non-slip when placed against a
hard surface. This versatile product is ideal for use in-clinic or at-home, has
applications in rehab and in wellness programs such as yoga and pilates, and is
perfectly suited for users of all ages.

An exercise poster is included to illustrate some of the most
popular Mini Ball exercises by targeted body area. 

Thera-Band Ankle and Wrist Weight Sets

Available in three color-coded weight sets, ranging from red (two
1 lb. weights), to green (two 1.5 lb. weights), to blue (two 2.5 lb. weights),
Thera-Band Ankle and Wrist Weight Sets offer a progressive weight system. Unlike
traditional in-clinic cuff rehabilitation weights, Thera-Band Ankle & Wrist
Weight Sets are soft against the skin and offer exceptional comfort. The sleek
neoprene exterior with adjustable strap easily adjusts to hug the wrist and
ankle for a customized fit while the reflective trip provides added safety for outdoor use.



Thera-Band Stability Disc

The Thera-Band Stability Disc joins the complete family of
Thera-Band stability products utilized for balance training, rehabilitation and
sports performance enhancement. The 13” disc offers an unstable and sensory-stimulating
surface designed to facilitate balance and proprioceptive training, and
automatic postural reactions. Complete with an exercise poster, it is ideal for
advanced balance exercises or for use as an active sitting cushion at home and
at work. In-clinic, practitioners can complete their circuit of

progressive balance training by combining the Stability Disc with
other Thera-Band balance products.



Thera-Band Resistance Tubing Loop

Featuring a padded connection point for a secure non-slip ankle
connection, Thera-Band Resistance Tubing Loops with padded cuffs are ideal for
sport-specific training and mid-range rehab and fitness programs. In clinic,
practitioners will find the Tubing Loops with Padded Cuffs to be ideal for
athletes and wellness patients. For those utilizing the product at home, an
